Warriors enter finals with easy win over SA
The Warriors entered the final of the Champions League T20 by beating the South Australian Redbacks in the second semi-final of the tournament. the Warrriors will now take on the Chennai Super Kings in the final of the tournament.>
The Warriors batted first and got to a poor start as Shaun Tait got rid of Ashwell Prince in the very first over for a duck. However, that only brought captain Davey Jacobs and Colin Ingram together and that began their century-run association for the second wicket.>
Jacobs has been in a fine fettle all throughout the CLT20 and he continued that to score a 41-ball 61 and blast his way to the top of the run-getters’ charts. He was ably supported by Inrgam’s 46 as the side looked like they were on their way to a 175 plus total.
It was in the middle overs that the dismissal of both the batsmen applied brakes to the scoring. The side seemed to be capitulating quickly and soon lost their way to slump to 124/4 with 26 balls to spare. However, it was a 7-ball 22 by Nicky Boje that saw the side get back to their course and end on a rather substantial 175/6 in the 20 overs.
In reply to this huge total in a pressure, knock-out game the South Australian team needed to start off well. Unfortunately for them, they lost both their openers, Michael Klinger and Daniel Harris in quick succession. Both had been two of the more prolific batsmen for the side, and with their early loss, the chances receded gradually. Callum Ferguson played an innings of substance as he smacked two sixes and eight boundaries in his 71, but that was not enough for the side to overhaul the opposition total.
In the end, South Australia managed to put up 145/7 in 20 overs, thus falling short by a comfortable 30 runs in wake of some good bowling by the Warriors.
